Major threats to wildlife in the Bakossi-Banyang Mbo landscape are poaching, illicit trade in bushmeat and animal parts, deforestation due to agricultural expansion and artisanal logging. The combined effect is the degradation of habitats and ecosystems and loss of biological diversity. CAD employs various approaches in achieving the long-term conservation of species and ecosystems. This is done through hunters’ engagement, climate-smart agriculture, community-based sustainable tourism (CBST) and forest restoration initiatives. in and around protected areas with the long-termed objective of stabilising and/or increasing target wildlife populations and improving livelihoods.
